Artist Opening Reception: Thursday, July 26, 6-9 pm​

Virginia McKinney employs several mediums in her work, Blossoms and Bones. Specifically, she uses porcelain, stoneware and earthenware casting slips and clays, natural found materials that she dips in slip and burns out, hand-forged steel, underglazes, washes, glaze, rust.

Matteo Neivert’s paintings explores the powerful forces of nature and biology in real and imaginary compositions.  Matteo paints these objects floating, dancing, cuddling, skating, flying, and skidding across the canvas to form movement, whimsy, and playfulness. A consistent thread in Matteo’s work is the idea of change and evolution.

Dennis Meiners uses an ancient technique named Mishima to apply imagery to ceramic surfaces that, involves incising lines into still-wet clay, laying a slip into the lines, then cleaning off the excess to reveal the line. This makes it possible to make a very crisp line and delicate drawing.

Steve Winkenwerder is an expert draftsman as shown in his drawings of skulls and bones in this show. The work itself is graphite on paper with some color pencil. He works from his collection of skulls, capturing the architecture of the subjects.
